  • Choosing nail polish colours online can be difficult. You may need to calibrate your monitor so the nail polish colours appear accurately represented. Our images are true to colour, however your screen may not be. Please also note that we do not exchange nail polish products for hygiene reasons.

  • We cannot guarantee our products will always be available on a continuous or uninterrupted basis. Whilst we endeavour to keep our stock levels up to date, there is a possibility the item you have ordered may be out of stock at the time of ordering. In this unlikely event, we will refund you immediately and do our best to offer you a replacement.

  • Purchases can be made by Visa and MasterCard credit cards, or via PayPal with our online payment facility.

    All prices are in Australian dollars (AUD). Prices listed on our website are correct at the time of publication, however, we reserve the right to alter prices for any reason.

    All transactions are settled in Australian dollars. If you are ordering from outside of Australia and your account details are held in a different currency, the order total will automatically be converted to Australian Dollars when you complete the transaction. The final charge to your credit card is made in Australian dollars and the conversion rate will be determined by your bank or card provider (who may also charge a small currency conversion fee). As such, we do not take responsibility if the final amount charged to your card differs slightly from the amount shown on the order receipt.

    Local import duties and taxes may apply in some countries when you receive your goods. These duties and taxes are the responsibility of the buyer or recipient.

  • To the maximum extent permitted by law, our liability for breach of any implied warranty, condition or undertaking which cannot be excluded is limited, at our option. Our exclusion of liability applies whether the claim is in contract, tort (including without limitation, negligence) or equity, even if we have been notified of the possibility of such loss or damage. You agree that our liability, if any, to you at law will be reduced by the extent, if any, to which you contributed to the loss.
